Vault’s Verdict

The culture at Putnam Associates is one that insiders say defy many of the most pervasive stereotypes about consultants. You’ll find no arrogance or cutthroat competitiveness here; at Putnam, they are a close-knit team of smart, humble, good-humored, and talented individuals. They support one another professionally and personally, and leadership has entrenched as a core value that the people are the most valuable resource the firm possesses.

Putnam Associates continues to grow rapidly in the healthcare consulting space, yet it maintains the supportive culture of a boutique firm. It is a good place for self-motivated, agile individuals who want to learn and apply their skills to multiple aspects of healthcare.  A genuine curiosity for the industry will suit you well, and along the path of your development, people will encourage you to learn as much as you want.

Training and mentorship are the cornerstones of the Putnam experience. The general sentiment is that this is the quintessential consulting experience for somebody pursuing their first job out of school. The firm enables you to make an impact quickly and provides you with a foundation that is comprehensive and transferable across any of the opportunities you encounter, both within the firm and beyond. Yet, despite being an excellent place to establish your foundation in consulting, the firm promotes often and presents many opportunities for growth to those that commit longer stretches of their careers to the firm.
